MorganEve Swain is The Huntress and Holder of Hands. A multi-instrumental string player, vocalist and songwriter, Swain is widely known as half of the music duo, Brown Bird, with her husband, Dave Lamb. The duo, who enjoyed national and international success, spent over six years performing and touring until Lamb’s untimely passing, at age 36, from leukemia in April 2014. That summer, Swain launched The Huntress and Holder of Hands, which began as a creative vessel for exploring both her grief and her growth. Her original songs were home-recorded and solo-performed using multi-layer tracks of voice and strings. Live, The Huntress and Holder of Hands is a band of six women, playing cello, upright bass, electric bass (sometimes two), and drums, with Swain on five-string viola. Deeply rooted in Swain and Lamb’s shared experience, The Huntress and Holder of Hands pulls creative energy from the same emotional place as Brown Bird, building unique harmony, string and bass-driven pieces influenced by Eastern European, Americana and Middle Eastern music, among other genres, and offering an intense musical and lyrical experience that explores love, loss, power and strength. The Huntress and Holder of Hands self-released The Water Street Demos EP in November 2015. A full-length album will be released in the summer of 2016.

Adrian + Meredith isn't just another folk duo traveling the country. They're a dynamic, hardworking tour-de-force, ready to entertain anyone in their audience path, making instant fans every show. They blend Folk, OldTime, PostPunk, PreWar Jazz, Soul, Rock & Roll, and Country music in the same set, sometimes same song. Their twisted storylines drive home poignant stories that make you think about what you're drinking, while clawhammer guitar, gypsy fiddle, and trad clogging will treat you to a high powered live show, that packs a punch.
Recently finishing their second full band, 11song LP, "More Than A Little" with Mark Robertson (Th'Legendary Shackshakers), including Paul Niehaus (Justin Townes Earle, Calexico) on Steel, Fats Kaplin (Jack White) on Banjo, JD Wilkes on Harmonica, and The Nashville Horns, the live band show brings high energy and hard hitting beats to the same rooted songs.
